Gold blast for Levy

adebaDavid Gold has slammed Daniel Levy after the Spurs chairman demanded the Hammers paid loan target Emmanuel Adebayor’s £100k wages in full to join the club.

The Hammers co-chairman tweeted: “No matter how hard you tried there are people out there that you just can’t do business with.”

The Irons – seeking cover for the apparently departing Carlton Cole – were baulked by Levy’s typical move in wanting to save every last penny on the deal.

The Spurs supremo was adamant that he did not want to pay for Adebayor to play for a top-four rival. West Ham are understood to have been the only Premier League club expressing an interest as being acceptable to the striker.

Levy, however, with Spurs just six points ahead of West Ham in the chase for the top four – refused to give way on wages.

Levy’s decision also left Carlton Cole unable to make an expected move to West Brom where the Hammers loyalist saw an agreed 18 month deal offer go begging.

He is understood to have completed all the formalities and was sitting at the Baggies’ HQ waiting for the green light.

  1. Daniel Levy is just like a big kid,because his club couldn’t suddenly become eastenders.God knows they’ve sang enough songs against east London.He still hates the fact that we won the rights to the Olympic Stadium.Not a boy for us to do any business with. C.O.Y.I.

  2. Levy did exactly what I would have done in his position and I cant believe that Gold thought this deal was a starter.

  3. FLHammer is spot on; why we would even think that Mr Levy would want anything less than full wages paid by is beyond me. If we had really wanted Adebayor then we would have met the terms and let our beloved Carlton get the deal he wanted at West Brom. Just seems like a smokescreen to me.

  4. Why are we trying to do business with levy in the first place?

  5. Levy is like the kid playing football who when things don’t go his way picks the ball up and says “it’s my ball and I’m going home”. Because he hasn’t got his own way he will put a spanner in the works.
